the end of the day, worked out with the senate republican leader. it seems to me, just reading the tea leaves and getting the vibes here, reading the body language, frankly, ali, is the fact that some senate democrats publicly talked about how upset they were about some of the deals, some of the items in the deal that the vice president was making, might have sort of spooked senate democratic leaders or at least gave them some backing to push back against both the vice president, their fellow democrat in the white house, and the senate republican leader. so republicans think the democrats aren't taking yes for an answer, and we'll see if that is the case at the end of the day when the clock strikes midnight. >> so in other words, we don't have a sure deal, and it might be unsure because there are some senate republicans who may not like it and some senate democrats who may not like it? >> that's right. although i have to be honest with you. yes, there are going to be senate democrats, if we do see a vote, senate democrats and senate republicans who likely will vote no no matter what.
